Eversheds pensions head Anthony Arter has been named as the firm’s next London senior partner.
Arter replaces Cornelius Medvei who steps down after three years as senior partner. Arter takes up his post on 1 September and will continue as head of pensions.
Arter said: “London is the flagship for Eversheds’ international practice. There’ve been a lot of changes to the legal world and business world generally.
“Eversheds is in a good position because it’s flexible and we can respond well to changes in the market.”
Arter added that Eversheds will be focusing on recruitment into core City practice areas such as financial services and private equity.
During his tenure as London senior partner Medvei led the national firm’s office move to One Wood Street in the City in May last year.
Eversheds chief executive Bryan Hughes said: “Cornelius is a partner with exceptional vision.
“He’s made a significant contribution to the development of our City practice.”
